For those who knew him, our friend and comrade Poreuomai passed away yesterday following a long battle with cancer.

Poreuomai has been a valued part of our community for a long time and his passing brings us great sadness, he will be truly missed. For some time now he has kept a blog to keep his many friends informed of his progress and to share his experiences. It has been a privilege to be permitted to follow his progress like this and his outlook, courage and faith have been nothing less than inspirational. His blog can be found here.

Poreuomai was a keen and able role-player who over the years found great enjoyment in this aspect of the game and its community. He expressed a desire to me to see his character's story reach a conclusion, something I discussed with him several times in recent weeks. In the near future we shall be running an event in his memory to give as many as possible an opportunity to attend and celebrate our friends contribution to the community.

Please join me in wishing his family peace and pausing a moment to remember Zack. May we always remember him.

Zack was a really nice guy and insanely brave in his long fight. An inspiration for all of us. He'll be greatly missed by all his corp and alliance mates.

As Ugleb said Poreuomai really enjoyed the RP side of the game and being with us in Ushra'Khan. He had great fun with the all-Matari fleet we ran with -A- in April and got the killing blow on a CVA TCU there :)
When Zack attended an EVE meet in London early last year he met and got along well with the guys there, including some of our old ingame opponents from CVA.

Our thoughts are with his wife and family.

Fly safe pal.

Wont forget him. He had a lot of courage, and showed great character during a truly testing time.

07 Poreuomai. Was a privilege to fly with you.

Poreumai's courage was truly inspirational. He kept us up to date on his condition both in our forums and on the link in Ugleb's post and we all were rooting for him. In the end the cancer won but not without a hell of a fight.

I can only smile at the thought of having shared some time (even if it was virtual) with him. His dedication to life was something to behold.

Good bye friend.

Ushra'Khan was greater for his presence, and the world is lesser for his absence.

May he fly free. o7

I am humble I have MIGHT
I wont give up without a FIGHT
If you dare then bring it ON
I will ashore you you’ll be GONE
If you want to live then do not FIGHT
I possess a powerful MIGHT
So if you want to live listen HERE
I am a warrior I have no FEAR
Get out of my TERROR-TORY
Or it will be a gruesome STORY
So go away I will FIGHT
I posses a powerful MIGHT

Rest peacefully brother Poreuomai, it is a sad day when a true warrior finally succumbs to eventual fate.

I knew him and i flew with him once or twice.

He gave me a drake and a hound one day and didnt say why he just said he wanted me to have them. I never knew he had cancer.


I will miss him he was such a great person!

I've been playing this game for so long, it feels like I have seen a dozen of these posts. Each one makes me think. They certainly help put my paltry problems into perspective. I've seen one such post start a war, and thought... if there is an afterlife, the fellow who passed away is probably getting a kick out of that. I never quite knew what to say in threads like these, or whether I should say anything, usually not knowing the person who passed on personally.

Poreuomai: I don't think we spoke, but I'll kill some Amarr for you.

It has been a priviledge to have him in our corp and team of directors for such a long time.

He was a real help, and a real friend. If i needed council, he was there.

poreuomai, the wanderer - he is now free.
The pain remains with us.

Rest in peace

Pore was a lot of fun to fly and talk with when ever he could log on.

All the best to his family in this time.

Edit: Duh, spelling... I'm horrible, yes

I was lucky enough to meet pore back in 08. He will be severly missed. Sad

Fly free brother.

I was shocked to hear about this.

He was one of the old-school Minnies and a fine opponent.

My condolences to his family and friends.

My deepest condolences to family and friends (both within EvE and out).

Another commited and fun RPer is now enjoying the great lag-free server in the sky.

Rest In Peace, Zack.

*drags Grr out of retirement*

I too had the pleasure of meeting this old enemy of mine for drinks once. I have the greatest respect for him especially how much of a positive attitude he displayed in his final days. Pretty sure I wouldn't have been able to show that sort of strength if it was me.

My respects to his family as I raise a drink to one of my favourite enemies.

I only knew him through reading his blog. But what courage! I wish his family the same courage for the times ahead.

Good Fight, and Fly Safe
